This little black bird would not let me get too close, so I was not able to get a good shot. This is a common bird of freshwater marshes. I was a little leery of getting too close to the creek mouth, the last time we were there, we heard there was a large alligator living in that area! Thanks to my friend Charlie for his help in identifying this bird.
